Description:

Our Blacksmith Experience day is held at our forge dating from the 1850's, which is located in the London Museum of Water and Steam in Kew.
The classes will have a maximum of two students. The day will start at 10.am with a 9.45 arrival time. There will be approximately 30 minutes for lunch, and the day will finish at approx. 4.30.pm.
The student will be given a hands-on introduction to the traditional craft of blacksmithing - learning basic techniques & creating their own piece of hand-forged ironwork to take away with them at the end of the day.

There are good road links, the M3/A316 to Richmond, then turn left to Kew and over Kew Bridge, and the Museum is just on the left hand side, or the M4/A4 to Chiswick Roundabout, where it’s right to Kew , and the Museum is on the right hand side. Alternatively British Rail to Kew Bridge station, from where the Forge is a five minute walk.

What's included in the price?

You will have to supply your own lunch and drinks, (though there are local shops and an onsite Café) and will need to wear long sleeved top and trousers, preferably cotton, but no man-made fibres. They will also need Steel toe cap shoes/boots.

All other safety wear will be provided, as will materials.

What an awesome day ... loved every minute of it! Neil was instructive and hands on all day whilst giving us plenty of time and space to learn and experience the craft of the blacksmith! We made some great pieces and will go back to learn more!

I had a really fun time with Neil. He's a friendly, knowledgeable blacksmith. Neil is easygoing and helpful; he was fine going at my pace.

It's a bit pricey, but worth it for a nice day out, using your hands, making something interesting and useful.
